Looking at CTAN, I found some of the modules, but not all of them.
I will take this to the Context list.

>From the doc:

Modulename : t-animation
Author     : Wolfgang Schuster
License    : GNU General Public License

And in the actual file it says:

%D \module
%D   [     file=t-animation,
%D      version=2013.04.07,
%D        title=\CONTEXT\ User Module,
%D     subtitle=Animations,
%D       author=Wolfgang Schuster,
%D         date=\currentdate,
%D    copyright=Wolfgang Schuster,
%D      license=GNU General Public License]

This looks good to me.

I'll talk to the ConTeXt people and report back.
